Tilapia is probably the most popular freshwater fish in much of East Africa. We all know and love this fish for its tastiness, and the hefty nutritional punch that it packs. But did you know there’s so much more to this delicacy than meets the eye? So here are 2 food for thought nuggets to ruminate upon as you enjoy these sustainably caught tilapia from Fresh catch!
- Tilapia was a symbol of rebirth in Egyptian art and was also said to accompany and protect the sun god on his daily journey across the sky.
- In Brazil, Nile tilapia fish skin applied as a bandage is being used in a new clinical trial to treat burn injuries, and in the United States, tilapia skin has been used to successfully treat third-degree wounds to the paws of two black bears caught in California’s Thomas wildfire, and also to treat burns on the paws of a black bear from California’s Carr wildfire
